The extensive construction on Brenau University’s campus is well underway and right on schedule for completion next year.

David Morrison, university vice president of communications and public relations, said the new sorority houses are “coming right along.”

“I think we’ve got roofs on at least three ...” Morrison said. “We’re on track to move across the street and do site preparation starting in around January on the larger residence hall across the street.”

The 72-bed residence hall is expected to be completed by move-in next fall.

Construction of the athletic complex hit a roadblock earlier this year, when it encountered some planning and zoning issues, Morrison said. The university is waiting for the Hall County Board of Commissioners to look at the project.

Finally, campus construction also includes an anatomy lab in the Brenau University Downtown Center, which should be complete within the month.

“It’s right on track and everything is on schedule, moving forward as expected,” Morrison said.
